Concert goers gather in the grounds to soak up the festival atmosphere and enjoy the classical live music. Beethoven’s ambitious ‘Battle Symphony’ which includes the live firing of 193 cannons as part of the music score percussion gives its name to these Battle Proms concerts filled with soul-stirring music performed by a full orchestra on the purpose-built stage.

Every year the programme features star soloists from the world of music and of course an emotional finale with an impressive fireworks display. The music programme includes a range of classy classics from rousing traditional tunes and flag-waving favourites to moving arias.

As well as the music the battle theme continues at these proms with cavalry displays combining horsemanship with sword skills in a show that pays homage to Napoleonic times. With echoes of national pride and solidarity these concerts also include a Spitfire flying display which is always a crowd pleaser. The concert proper starts in the late afternoon so it’s well worth getting there when the gates open around 4.00pm!

Every year there is a full programme of concerts for you to choose from. The proms organisers support the charity SSAFA the Armed Forces charity so each ticket sold will be helping raise funds too.
